BROOKLYN - Guests at the Caribbean Jerk and Reggae Fest spent their Friday night in Williamsburg celebrating Caribbean culture.

Attendees were treated to a live performance by the Reggae band Indaze and a dinner menu featuring some of Jamaica's famous dished like jerk chicken and hot pepper shrimp.

The food was prepared by chef Michael Psilakas, who is traditionally known for Greek cuisines.

The venue's general manager said they wanted to experiment with something a little different and with the time of year, there was no better place for their patrons to experience than the Caribbean.

The Caribbean fest continues Saturday and will return the last weekend of August.
